Morris, who had been at Fishburn for more than three years as a consultant working across both the financial and professional services and corporate units, joined the global investment manager on Monday.
In addition, the firm has hired Nadia Hassini in the same role. Hassini had been freelancing since earlier this year for the company, having previously worked in a PR role for Equiniti, which provides various finance and administrative services to companies.
Morris will be based principally in London but working with AllianzGI's global experts to provide commentary on the themes and trends driving markets, while Hassini will work on external and internal comms in the UK, based out of London.
Both will work closely with Alastair Fairbrother, head of UK comms and John Wallace, global head of comms.
Morris left Fishburn the same day it was announced the agency's UK operations were being merged with those of FleishmanHillard.
